Buoys mark the channel through Lake Gatun, Panama

Buoys mark the channel through Lake Gatun, Panama. As Lake Gatun is a manmade body of water, to both supply the locks and provide a navigable body of water for the transiting ships, the deep channels are marked with floating navigational buoys. The lake bed is treacherous, owing to buildings, trees, trucks and even a train that was simply left to the rising water.
